This is a hymn much sung during Christmas among Christian Palestinians, both indoors and outdoors. In the Bethlehem area you hear it during all kinds of activities including processions, demonstrations, and symbolic actions.
By Fr Mansour Labki of Lebanon (composed and written)
Translation by Fuad Giacaman
During Christmas night no more hate
During Christmas night the soil flourishes
During Christmas night war is buried
During Christmas night love grows
When we offer a drink to a thirsty person, then we are in Christmas
When we clothe a naked person with a cloak or dress of love, then we are in
When we wipe out tears from the eyes of those who weep, then we are in
When we warm up or put a mattress for somebody and the hearts are filled
with hope, then we are in Christmas
When I kiss my companion or friend without cheating, then I am in Christmas
When the spirit of revenge dies out in me, then I will be in Christmas
When my heart has no more grudge, then I will be in Christmas
When my soul melts in God's being, then I will be in Christmas
